Whatever your interest, there’s a track for it.
Here is quote of Forbes: “The best technology conference on the planet.”
As well, The Financial Times describes Web Summit as “the world’s biggest tech conference”; the Telegraph calls it “the planet’s best tech conference”; Politico says it’s “the Olympics of tech”; Bloomberg describes it as “Davos for geeks”; and the Guardian calls it “Glastonbury for geeks”.
Web Summit CEO Paddy Cosgrave said “Lisbon is still Web Summit’s home, but with growing Covid-19 outbreaks across Europe, we have to think of what’s best for the people of Portugal and our attendees. The safest and most reasonable answer is to host Web Summit fully online in 2020. We look forward to welcoming attendees back to Lisbon in 2021.”
